A generous, warm-hearted red wine with a long, velvety finish.

12 x 750ml bottles

We started making the Virginia Vineyard Red over 30 years ago for a single reason - Life is too short to drink anything other than great wine. Our aim is to provide a delicious red wine at an everyday drinking price.

Named after our original family vineyard planted at Virginia, just north of Adelaide in South Australia. We source the fruit from Primo Estate’s Virginia and McLaren Vale vineyards plus selected local growers.

Abundant sunshine and the afternoon sea breezes sweeping off St Vincent’s Gulf combine to produce the base for this generous, warm-hearted red.

We use a proven blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to create a harmonious, mouth filling style. Following blending, we age in older American and French oak barrels to marry the components and impart a mellow, lingering oak character.

Enjoy FREE Shipping when you order 5 cases or more of any Virginia Vineyard product.

We GUARANTEE your satisfaction - if you do not LOVE your Virginia Vineyard order, we will refund the full cost of the wine.

Excellent rating for price and quality. Full bodied and great structure. So often "cheap" wines are thin and acidic. Great fruit and tannin and good drinking for now. Have purchased in the past and left for a year or so - I know how even better it gets after a rest. THanks for a great wine at a very reasonable price. I'm passing on the good news to friends!

I've purchased this product a few times and have never been disappointed. As a stand alone wine it is pretty good but for the price it is excellent. So often cleanskins are limp and insipid but this is full bodied, juicy and mouth filling. Terrific every day drinking.

Primo shiraz/Cab/Merlot cleanskin is everything all the other reviewers have said and more. While a blend, the shiraz is dominant, but not overpowering. The cab adds body and the merlot adds smoothness. Normally not a merlot drinker, this is subtle and the ladies like the smoothness. A great everyday wine, always on the kitchen bench, not for the cooking, for the cook! Make sure you serve it at room temperature, at least 20Deg C. Not so easy this winter. Just bought another 10 dozen. Thanks Joe, Richard & the team at Primo.

An excellent wine for everyday drinking. It is, as described, smooth and medium bodied and not thin as in many cleanskins. Terrific value!! I have purchased now for a few months and have passed on my recommendation to friends.

My husband and I received our order a couple of weeks ago and it blew us away how good this wine was. It is so smooth and has a beautiful aroma. For the price we were not expecting such an excellent wine. It is that good we have ordered another dozen. We cannot wait for it to arrive and share it with our family and friends.

After visiting the winery in January we were extremely impressed with the wines and wine tasting presentation. We found this wine while searching the website and decided to buy a dozen.We were so impressed that are about to make our third order before the last bottles are finished. The best wine i have tasted for the price.

I've been buying Primo estate wines for over 40 years. We used to buy bulk and bottle ourselves.Virginia Vinyards is a much easier way to buy your wine. We've always bought it untasted and have never been disappointed.

fragrant bouquet heralds the delights ahead ... full-bodied, and nicely rounded, with some pleasing chocolate and licorice notes, this wine has a depth and complexity not expected at this price point.

I was hesitant because the wine was only 1 year old. But I was astounded by the quality and drinking enjoyment. It was just so good with a good price. I bought a dozen. Today I tried to order 2 dozen, but it’s all gone. I will definitely be buying more next year.

I must admit to a bit of buyer remorse. I fell for the ad on FB and based on Primo Estate's reputation bought a box. My heart sank a bit when the box arrived and I saw "2020" on the outside. I had never bought a one year old red before. My fears were allayed when I opened I poured it - good colour, good nose and just so damned slurpable. Not necessarily a wine to discuss but one to enjoy and one that punches well above its weight division.

Yet another spot-on vintage. Thanks again, Paul for introducing this to us 12 years ago. It's thoroughly dependable as our go to wine. We find ourselves waiting for the next delivery whilst having to taste other ( more expensive) disappointing wines. Thanks.

You are not going to get a better red at this price anywhere. Nice drop, good balance, my wife likes it a lot (and that's good!). I buy this wine every time I can, and this wine had led me to be a member of this winery and buy their other products. Spot on.
